Do You Have a Warm Coat?

I guess most of us are preoccupied with how cold it is about now. I’ve had it with this dark, cold, sunless January. I have to admit the snow did help our plight somewhat, as my philosophy about cold is, “If you get no snow, the winter has no redeeming quality whatsoever.” Today, I see… Continue reading Do You Have a Warm Coat?

The Wrap Up

When we were growing up, my brother would wrap all the Christmas gifts. He took painstaking effort to make each one special. Before we ripped right into the gift he would say, “Stop, notice the wrapping!” We stopped in mid air and looked adoringly at the box and would say, “ahhhhh.” Since then, I’ve always… Continue reading The Wrap Up

December 2

  Yesterday, my blog focused on the special memories of Christmas that warm our hearts and bring a smile to our faces. However, there is another side of Christmas, actually, another side of life.

One such fantastic book is called The War of Art by Steven Pressfield. I believe it is… Continue reading Resistance

The End

We don’t talk about ‘the end’ very much.  We’d rather talk about the beginning.  At first glance, we assume the best is always in ‘the beginning’ and that ‘the end’ brings bad news, but that isn’t always the case.  Many times, ‘the end’ can actually be good news. It all depends on your perspective in… Continue reading The End

I’m Feeling Wobbly

I love it when I find that someone else has used a fun word I often use like, ‘wobbly.’  My devotion, this morning, started out this way, “Trust Jesus and refuse to worry, for He is your strength and song. Are you feeling wobbly this morning…?” Why, yes, I am! I actually tweaked my back… Continue reading I’m Feeling Wobbly
